    in regards to the pubic hair conversations I really, really dislike hair. I mean bush hair above the cock is VITAL for me. it's a must, I don't like clean shavin it the it looks bald. then again I prefer a shaved chest, limited underarm hair a nicely trimmed bush.

    seeing I do this every so often with a shaver I've noticed that I sometimes get rashes. for example I shaved my chest a few days ago and I've had a rash with small zits ever since. any suggestions on how to stop the rashes? I want that smooth, crisp feeling not some bloody red spot on it!

    ideas?

    I see that, like me, you have very naturally fair skin. It is probably easily irritated. I don't shave my chest, obviously, but I have to be very careful about how I shave my legs and bikini area.

    What product are you using to shave (i.e. shaving cream) and what type of razor are you using?

    Also, have you ever used a creme depilatory, such as Nair? Some sensitive-skinned people can't use it, but it may actually be something to try (do an allergy test on a small spot of skin first). If your skin tolerates it, it might be less irritating than shaving.

    I shave everything as I like the smooth look and seems more prevalent in the nudist community- The only time I have had those small zits and rash on my chest area was when I went into a wet sauna a day or so after I shaved-I finally went to the doctor about a week or so after the symptoms appeared and didnt go away- he in fact asked if I had been in sauna -So maybe u did the same thing or were in some type of environment similar to a sauna like a jacuzzi or the weather was especially humid or perhaps ur shaver wasnt all that clean- Just some suggestions on what might have caused it- Good luck

    If you really must shave it all off... using hair conditioner is great. It makes the hairs softer and the razor glides more smoothly.

    I'm rather fair but most things don't really bother me. I tried Nair, and it was just as bad.

    I don't think I've been in a jacuzzi but I think I had just come out of the shower (I like warm showers). So I'm not really sure what it is. I'm using a Gillette Fusion shaver and the creme that you buy to go with it.

    Try shaving oil. In the UK we get King Of Shaves products which are awesome, I prefer shaving my face with these now. However, probably a good idea to make sure you start with a sharp razor as well.

    I use baby oil with aloe vera to shave, and thought of suggesting this, but didn't since BC said he had acne, I wondered if oil would aggravate it.

    However, blackcameron, if the bumps are eczema and not acne, oil might be just the thing.

    I use it as follows:
    1) Shower normally (this allows hair to soften)
    2) Pat area dry with a towel
    3) Apply baby oil liberally
    4) Shave in shower
    5) Rinse area

    I rinse the baby oil after shaving, but don't wash it off with soap. I live in a very dry climate and leaving some oil behind is very conditioning for the skin.

    Before a swim meet I will shave my chest and legs. I too apply hair conditioner to my skin before I shave in the shower. This works pretty well. I usually don't have have any irritation except sometimes with the coarser hair on the upper thighs.

    Hope this helps.

    Wet the area to be shaved with a hot towel. then use a good lubricated shave cream (Kiss my Face and Kiel's are both good) Shave with new blades, follow up with 100% coconut oil, shave again, Slick and smooth!!!
    Buddy and I did it from the neck down a couple of weeks ago. Very Hot sex.
